UFC Fight Night 58 will feature a scrap between two rising fighters, as the promotion has announced that Patrick Cummins will battle Antonio Carlos Junior.

The upcoming event will go down December 20th, in Barueri, Brazil, and will feature Lyoto Machida taking on fellow middleweight contender CB Dollaway in the main event.

Cummins (6-1) is coming off victories over Roger Narvaez and Kyle Kingsbury, after he was stopped by Daniel Cormier in his UFC debut in February.

Carlos Jr. (4-0) worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Vitor Miranda in May, to win TUF Brazil III’s heavyweight competition. The decorated grappler will be dropping to light-heavyweight to face Cummins.
